Up for sale a George Merrill R.E.A.L. 101 (original version: V1) with the much "sought after" bakelite platter. After this first versión, George Merrill moved away from bakelite material for his plateros due to difficulty of working with it and rising costs, but sonically, this material is considered the best of all they produced.
This TT was bought originally as a dealer demo with very low in store use.Rated. 8/10 because I'm not the original owner but cosmetic condition is very very good to say the least, looks gorgeous. Please see the pictures.
